Can anybody provide user friendly guidance to ESA datasets?

What is available?

When will new stuff be available?

I struggle to work out what might be interesting amongst the many websites and their somewhat verbose format. For example this question indicates that there is probably some high resolution imagery available or coming soon somewhere.... When I try to find anything I find page after page after page about data access but very little information about the type of data itself.

The whole Copernicus Project looks fascinating!

I understand that it is all very new and many things aren't functioning yet nevertheless I would love to begin preparing ideas.

Can anybody point me in the right direction?

check this site: ESA Earth Online.

if you have any doubt read this: EO data distributed by ESA

And see How to Access Data webpage for details.

If you are interested in Copernicus Project check this site

  • these are links I wanted to add in my initial post as examples of how inaccessible these data sets are. What I am looking for is a high level overview that keeps me updated as things come on line.

  • The content on these ESA pages seem friendly enough, you can browse the data products and find out about each one in more detail, so that should help answer What is available and get product news so that should help answer When will new stuff be available
